The unique position held by public employees in labor has traditionally precluded public employee strikes. Maryland, as well as other jurisdictions, has adhered to this practice. However, the expansion of the government into many non-critical roles diminishes the need for this policy. The author suggests that Maryland review its attitude toward public sector strikes and adopt the view of several other jurisdictions which allow such strikes.
